OrderPaperToday – Out of those who contested to join the 9th assembly House of Representatives, Tijani Kayode Ismail secured victory in the election and now makes his way to represent Ifelodun/Offa/Oyun federal constituency of Kwara state as a first timer in the House.
Mr. Tijani who was the candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) won the seat after defeating Olarinoye Tope Olayonu of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and other candidates.
Mr. Kayode who hails from Erin-Ile in Oyun local government, Kwara State, graduated from the Federal Polytechnic, Kaduna and reportedly served as an aide to a federal lawmaker from Niger State.
He can be described as a greenhorn as he has not held any elective office before he won the election.
